make a group HOH for your crystal waters, and SOL for the solvent you
add with genbox. if you keep the crystal waters in the original
pdb-file, i think that pdb2gmx does this automatically, or at least
some previous version of gmx did this.  you should just make sure that
the groups are not merged at a later stage in your system preparation
(genion or genbox). oh, and you might have to copy spc.itp to hoh.itp
and change the molecule name therein. then #include both files.
